The basket was as big as the ocean for Lancaster in the second half of Friday night’s District 15-4A matchup against Mansfield Summit, leading to a decisive 71-60 win for the Tigers.

Lancaster (19-4, 6-1 District 15-4A) features two 6-foot-9 post players who were too much for Summit to handle.

“What makes them effective is if their kids outside can shoot the ball well, and that’s what they did,” Summit coach Jason Mutterer said. “We didn’t block out second and third shots. It wasn’t the first shots that killed us tonight, it was the second and third shots, and it was them being able to skip the ball over to a shooter.”

Three Lancaster players finished with double-doubles, led by junior post Elijah Thomas with 14 points and 15 rebounds.

Equaling Thomas in points was senior Kaelon Wilson with 14 points and 10 rebounds, followed by the other 6-foot-9 post player, Nate Morris with 11 points and 14 rebounds.

Lancaster’s outside threat, Antwon Portley, finished with a game-high 18 points.

Keilyn Nance led Summit (13-9, 4-3 District 15-4A) with 16 points, 11 coming in the second half.
